ROCKY MOUNTAIN PRESCHOOL CENTER
For you and your child, childcare is a critical extension of your family. Rocky Mountain Preschool Center offers a quality environment that incorporates your child's uniqueness into our classrooms. Our belief is that in a sound learning atmosphere, your child will develop a true sense of his or her identity.
Our professional staff includes a program director, three lead teachers and four teachers assistants. Additionally, four Foster Grandparents provide love and guidance to our preschool children, ensuring a high level of individual attention. All of our teachers and assistants are certified in CPR and first aid and attend between 23 and 80 hours of professional development training per year.
Rocky Mountain Preschool follows a curriculum based on the children's interests, abilities and needs. Kindergarten readiness skills are emphasized on a daily basis through play and group activities. Building strong bonds and healthy attachments with all children is the number one priority for our staff. RMDC utilizes the Pyramid Model of Social/Emotional Development.
